This is one of the best hairstyles to conceal split ends, fading colour or heat damage. By no means are we saying leave the hair to repair itself – treat it and get split ends trimmed ASAP.

  1. Apply a nourishing moisturiser and comb hair neatly to the back.
  2. Gather all the hair at the nape and tie securely, and use a semi holding spray with a brush or fine comb to secure flyaways in place.
  3. Separate the ponytail into two parts, twist each section separately, then twist them together, stopping 2–3cm from the tip.
  4. Secure the end with a small hair band.

The it bob

The vintage bob is back as spotted on stars like Ayanda Thabether and Boity, and we are so keen to rock this sophisticated blast from the past.

Keep the top section flat with a middle parting, and cut the hair (or extensions) until it's just beneath the ear lobe. Straighten the hair with a cool iron, and finish with a glossy spray.

Middle Parting

All the celebs and supermodels are ditching the side parting for the centre version, with Bonang Matheba leading the way. This look does wonders for the face as it enhances your features.

If your tresses are stubborn, reach for the blow dryer to separate and flatten the strands.

Wrapped bun

As intricate as it seems, this style is simple to achieve. It saves time on styling in the morning and it's also a great protective style because your ends are nicely tucked in.

Roots looking a little shady between relaxers? Just wrap a cute scarf and knot it at the crown. Tie the hair up and create a messy bun at the top. Viola!

Trendy cornrows

The braid and cornrow combo is the coolest trend of 2016 and sees its way back into this year. Its a versatile look formal enough for the office.

The cornrows are braided to one side falling into long braids you can tie or leave loose. You can rock it with your corporate and casual gear on the weekends.
